numyer. i live in washington but met chris 26 years ago at hastings law school, two blocks from here. we were in the same section in the same study group. when we finished law school we both went to the east coast to work for large law firms. over the years we stayed in close touch. when chris was back from over seas we were frequent tennis partners and would get together for dinners and other events in washington. over the years our families became friends as well. it's been such a pleasure to come to know them and chris's many friends in washington and to watch his career unfold. we met on the first day of school. i sat down in our civil procedure class next to a person who turned out to be named chris highland. shortly thereafter chris stevens sat down next to me. the three of us went to lunch afterwards and became friends from that day forward. chris never tried to be someone special but he was someone special. when we were at hastings his charm and wit were on display from the start. in class he was very articulate and seemed as later in life always very poised and well spo

washington's ability to govern, at least when it comes to the economy. he knows he's alone in trying to get people hired. he doesn't want to be blamed for what happens when we go over the cliff. he's actually more worried about those who don't have jobs than he is about those who do. put simply, the guy's got a heart. he's not willing to check the heart at washington's door. all right. come on, this show's about making money, cramer. not a cardiology exam of ben bernanke versus the president and congress. it's the most valuable thing you can do to keep the bull market from running out of steam. as part of a long term analysis of the stock market that i've been working on pretty much every night at home, if you only needed to know one number, one piece of data to predict the direction of the market, you would choose the unemployment rate. when the unemployment rate is going lower and jobs are being created, stocks going up, the positive signs. the congress of course is true, too. sell when people are being fired left and right. now, the problem at the moment isn't with the fed, it's with the

now. good morning from washington. it's thursday, december 13, 2012. this is "the daily rundown," i'm chuck todd. the only reason we can't saturday fiscal cliff negotiations have fallen apart is that the two sides are still talking. but things are bad, make no mistake. and neither side is optimistic that anything can get done at all. with congress and the president careening to the edge of the cliff, the public is ignoring party lines and demanding an end to this mess. 70% of democrats, 59% of republicans want their own party's leaders to come to an agreement, even if it means not sticking to long-held positions on taxes and entitlements and yet despite those demand, the country is evenly divided on whether they think a consensus can be worked out here in washington, whether they believe obama and boehner can strike a deal. interestingly folks that are paying more attention to the fiscal cliff story are more pessimistic. it's the folks paying less attention that are more optimistic. judging by what we're hearing from negotiators, the public clearly knows something is up in the bad way
